More window shopping

Since my job consists of testing ModCloth's website (and taking breaks often mean browsing the new arrivals), I get a good look at pretty much everything that comes along on the site. So why not keep track of my faves and share them with you guys? These are my favorite new items from this week. I haven't bought any of them (yet!) but I'll be sure to share if I do!

ModCloth favorites

  1. Bobbin to the Beat Dress - Since getting this red beauty, I'm in love with peter pan collars and simple A-line shapes. I love the muted florals paired with a bright collar and buttons on this one.
  2. For the Wind Dress - I have yet to find a maxi dress that looks good with my wide hips and relatively short legs, but I still love the color blocking and sleek silhouette here.
  3. I'll Have My Regular Dress - This is, unfortunately, too appropriately named. It looks very familiar, as if I already own it. A little too much my usual style, I'd say.
  4. Catch a Glimpse Heel - These are so bold and unique. I love almost everything about them - the color, the polka dots, the shape and height. The one thing I could do without is the lace. I'd probably need a good deal of practice before being able to actually walk in them.
  5. Love is in the Era Dress - Ooooh yes. If my curves didn't look so frumpy in shift dresses like this, I'd be all over it. I love 20s styles so very much and wish I could pull more of them off!
  6. Gondola Lift Tour Dress - This is the new long-sleeved sister of ModCloth's popular Coach Tour Dress. I hardly have any dresses with sleeves so this definitely caught my eye. Doesn't it look cozy?
  7. Cupcake Contest Shoulder Bag - This reminds me a lot of my other favorite bag. See #3, I have a thing for stripes.

Thanks to Polyvore for the awesome collage tools! And once again, I have no incentive for writing these posts other than having an outlet for all of my clothing lust - better to post than overflow my closet with even more clothes, right?


  1. I definitely understand clothing lust, haha. I really like the first dress (and I really, really like the dress you bought and linked back to. it's so cute!).

    I haven't tried Polyvore yet, but maybe I should.

  2. Polyvore is great for making collages of outfits and things (with easy links back to the source), but in this case I mostly used it as a replacement for Photoshop, since I don't have any programs that let me combine images like this.
